“The gender stereotypes related to the Construction industry haven't stopped me from studying this course which will help me to reach my dream career of starting my own furniture upcycling business. The staff at the College are amazing. I would definitely advise any female who is thinking of studying a construction course to just do it and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.”

“I am impressed with the standard of the tutors and their knowledge. COVID-19 lockdown has resulted in remote learning which has been a challenge to all of us, but I believe one which has been dealt with well by our teachers. There are students at different stages of their careers in very different roles, but the lectures are clear and move at a steady pace so that nobody gets left behind.”
